Our expert says:
Each of us is unique, but much of what you describe sounds rather typical of Depression --- one feels tired and weary even before activity, and pessimistic beyond reason. Everything seems doomed and impossible, and one is tempted to give up. Sleep and appetite are usually disturbed, too. And they complain and kvetch about everything.
Maybe, even if it is reasonable for the house to be put on the market, to some extent she may also be mourning the coming loss of the house and home she loved for so many years. But Depression can be very successfully treated, and before long she should be feeling less pessimistic and more energetic. Delighted to hear that the clinic has told her that they don't do Sleep Therapy --- without any exception, only quacks offer or perform "Sleep Therapy" which is dangerous and without benefits. Sounds like her vitamin supplements ought to be sufficient.
Of course one feels impatient to see improvement, but 6 days is still fairly early. Though some people respond earlier, it generally takes at least 2 to 4 weeks for antidepressants to have their full effects ; and sometimes, a person isn't best suited by the first one tried, and needs a trial of a second medicine.
